Optomeyes doctors and patients donate to CNIB

In support of vision health month, Dr. McRoberts and Dr. Bowden donated $2 from every eye exam fee for the month of May to the Canadian National Institue for the Blind (CNIB). We also received donations from many patients - on behalf of the CNIB, thank you!

From the Vision Health Month Website:

"May is Vision Health Month, and CNIB is challenging Canadians to take action to maintain their vision health so that we can eliminate avoidable sight loss in Canada. Vision loss can happen to anyone, at any age, but many Canadians aren’t aware that 75 per cent of vision loss can be prevented or treated. Our goal? To reduce the number of Canadians who needlessly lose their sight each year by 50 per cent by the year 2020. That’s 22,500 Canadians whose sight could be saved every year – the size of a typical town."

Personal Message from Drs. McRoberts, Bowden & Davidson regarding COVID-19

Considering the evolving situation of COVID-19, we feel it is our responsibility to prioritize the health of our community members during this critical time and do what we can to minimize the opportunity for transmission. As a result, we have made the decision to close our physical clinic and provide only virtual appointments & emergency referrals until further notice.

For Squamish patients, please call 604-892-5055 during our regular business hours to consult.
For West Vancouver patients, please call 604-922- 0413 during our regular business hours to consult.

We are here if you need us!

**Please note – we will continue to be available for your glasses, contacts, eye drops, ocular supplements and any other product or prescription needs. Please call and we can arrange to have these shipped directly to your door at no charge.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times. We are hopeful that this will be a temporary measure, and will be monitoring the situation carefully. Please take care of yourselves & each other, and we hope to see you soon!
